A day with light winds and comfortable temperatures, perfect for a short sail to check out SPARTINA'S rigging.
I do not recall when I last sailed on the beautiful Pasquotank River. I found myself nostalgic for the tree-lined shores, the old marinas and downtown park with a boat ramp. I first began sailing there in 1988 with my old Devlin-designed Nancy's China. And I sailed there for many years in SPARTINA, the winter sailing being a pure joy.
This was just a brief outing. All the rigging is good to go. I might make a minor adjustment but it is more cosmetic than anything.
Just looking at these pictures now I feel Elizabeth City tugging at my heart. I need to get back down there more often.
